Center on Contemporary China

Yu Xie is the Bert G. Kerstetter ’66 University Professor of Sociology and has a faculty appointment at the Princeton Institute of International and Regional Studies, Princeton University.

The interns of the China Impact Project took a tour of the local wildlife and fauna at the Billie Johnson Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve. The China Impact Project is designed to understand how the public in other countries view China via sociological/computational methods.
